On the calendar of Rotary International February is designated as Peace and Conflict Resolution month. We wonder what the world would be like if Peace and Conflict Resolution was the norm. Instead, around the world refugees are finding a new life in new countries, children and adults lives are being cut short due to warfare, hate rules causing strife and separation, political preferences directed toward attacks and acts of denigration replace the pronouncements of peace.
Rotarians are called to do more than raise an awareness of the need for peace. So with Peace and Conflict Resolution as one of the six areas of focus, Rotary joins leaders, share ideas and takes action.
The Rotary District Leadership continues to take action for peace and conflict resolution. Sarah Sanderson Doyle, a Global Peace Fellow from District 6290 is on a two-year Rotary Peace Fellowship in Tokyo, Japan at the International Christian University studying and doing research on Peace and Conflict Resolution. Take time to view her experiences and provide encouragement for this life investment in changing lives and transforming the world. Follow Sarah's journey at her blog (also at District home page).
